Background: Clause 2.13.6G of the Wholesale Electricity Market Rules requires System Management to review the Tolerance Range and Facility Tolerance Ranges at least annually. The Tolerance Range or a Facility Tolerance Range is relevant for breach reporting purposes under clause 2.13.6B – System Management is not required to report an alleged breach of clause 3.21 or clause 7.10.1 if it is within the Tolerance Range or the Facility Tolerance Range. When conducting the annual review of the Tolerance Range and Facility Tolerance Ranges, System Management must consult with Rule Participants.
System Management invites Rule Participants to make a submission on its 2016 review of the Tolerance Range and Facility Tolerance Range threshold. For further information regarding the annual review please refer to the 'System Management's invitation to provide submissions' document below.

The Tolerance Range to apply to Scheduled Generators from 1 July 2016 will continue to be calculated with the following formula:
Tolerance Range = (+/-) MAX (6, MIN [5% NPC, 4*ROC])
NPC: Name plate capacity of the generator, expressed in MW (Market Rules Appendix 1(b)(ii))
ROC: Rate of Change or Ramp Rate of a Unit per minute (Market Rules Appendix 1(b)(v))
